In collaboration with the City of Markham and Town of Richmond Hill and under the approval of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, York Region is:

  • Constructing Norman Bethune Avenue, a new road crossing over Highway 404, north of Highway 7
  • Constructing Aristotle Avenue by extending the Highway 404 northbound off -ramp at Highway 7

Each improvement will complement York Region’s transit investments along Highway 7 and help move residents.

Construction began spring 2016 and is expected to be completed by 2018.

As with other construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather. Advance notice will be provided whenever possible and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Transit services

Transit services along Highway 7 will continue throughout construction. For inquiries about transit routes during construction, riders are encouraged to visit yrt.ca or call 1-866-MOVE-YRT (668-3978).

Safety

Safety is a top priority on all Regional construction sites. Please contact us if you observe any unsafe conditions in and around this site.

Motorists are advised to reduce their speed through the construction area.

Driving investments on Regional roads

Transportation and congestion remain a key concern for York Region residents. York Regional Council has made this a top priority by investing more funds in transportation and transit-related initiatives than in any previous term of Council.

This year alone, more than 100 projects in various stages of implementation are underway across all nine local municipalities.
